Balbooa Joomla Forms Builder 2.3.0 — New Features and Integrations

Goodbye The Backward Compatibility Plugin

We strive to provide our customers with maximum efficiency and ease of use, so we are constantly working on updates and improvements to our products. Therefore, we are pleased to announce an important change in the new version of Balbooa Joomla Forms Builder — our form builder is now fully compatible with Joomla 5. This means that Joomla 5 users can use Balbooa Joomla Forms Builder without a compatibility plugin.



Simply put, Balbooa Joomla Forms now has a new file structure and uses new Joomla classes, which fully meets the requirements of Joomla 5 and upcoming Joomla 6.



Please note that compatibility with Joomla 3 is no longer supported. We are focusing on versions 4 and 5 for maximum efficiency and security. This means that Balbooa Joomla Forms will no longer be compatible with Joomla 3, and we recommend that all customers who are still using Joomla 3 upgrade to Joomla 4 or Joomla 5 to ensure compatibility with our form builder and gain access to all its features.

Undo and Redo in Editor

We introduce a new and highly anticipated feature — Undo/Redo in the Form Editor. This is a powerful addition to our form builder that makes it easy to undo or redo actions when creating forms.

When editing a form, you may accidentally delete or change elements, or you might want to return to the previous state of the form. Now with Undo and Redo features in the editor, it couldn't be easier! You can easily undo or redo your last actions to achieve the desired result.



This feature is especially useful when working with large and complex forms, where small changes can have major consequences. With Undo Redo, you can be sure that your changes will be safe, and you can return to any stage of working with the form.

Submission Limitations

Balbooa Joomla Forms has an exciting new option — Submission Limitations. With this new feature, you have more control and flexibility in managing the forms on your site.

The Submission Limitations option is available in the Submit Button settings. Let's look at what features this option provides.

Number of Submissions

Now, you can easily set the total number of times the form can be submitted. This is ideal when you need to limit the number of participants in an event or the number of registrations.

Joomla User ID

For users logged into your site, you can set a limit on the number of form submissions. This is a great way to prevent abuse and keep control of your forms.

User IP Address 

Using this option, you can set the maximum number of form submissions from one IP address. Form submissions will be stopped if the number of submissions exceeds the set limit.

Expiration Date

With this option, you can set a date after which the form will no longer be active. This is useful when you have a limited time to collect information or register.

Expiration Message

And, of course, you can customize the text that will be displayed when the form submission limit is reached. This will help notify your customers that the form is unavailable.

Cloudflare Turnstile Integration

We're excited to introduce you to another amazing feature in Balbooa Forms Builder — Cloudflare Turnstile integration.

Cloudflare Turnstile Integration - Balbooa Joomla Forms Builder

This is a new alternative to the captchas available in our builder, which gives you more freedom of choice and additional protection for your forms from spam and unwanted requests. Integration with Cloudflare Turnstile allows you to use advanced data protection technologies, providing high security for your forms.



One of the key benefits of Cloudflare Turnstile is its effectiveness in resisting spam and minimizing damage to the user experience. With Balbooa Joomla Forms Builder integration and Cloudflare Turnstile, you can easily add a Cloudflare captcha to your forms and enjoy its benefits without any extra effort.

Google Sheets and Google Drive Integrations

We've brought back integrations with Google Sheets and Google Drive.

Now, you can easily connect your forms with Google Services and automatically send data to tables and upload form submissions in PDF to Google Drive. This is a great way to simplify the process of collecting and analyzing data.



Integrating Balbooa Joomla Forms with Google services opens up many possibilities for managing the data collected from your forms. You can easily organize, analyze and process the information you receive using the full power of Google Sheets tools. This is especially useful for team collaboration, as you can easily edit tables together and see data updates in real time.

Improved Telegram Integration

We've reworked the Balbooa Joomla Forms with Telegram integration so you no longer waste time sending messages to the bot every day. Now this process has become automatic, which makes working with Telegram even more convenient and efficient.
